This Milwaukee weekend is full of art, sweets and all around holiday fun.

See it before it's too late! Black Nativity by Langston Hughes is in its last weekend at the Winston Theater at Vogel Hall. The play is a modern retelling of the Christmas Story with African American dance, poetry and song.

Get out and enjoy the weather during this brief warm-up. The Urban Ecology Center is hosting a Candlelight Walk in celebration of the Winter Solstice. The candlelit path takes guests through the Centennial Rotary Arboretum with stops along the way for poetry and prose readings. And if the cold is too much for you, there's a chance to warm up at the end by a fire with music, snacks and hot cider.

There's nothing like Christmas cookies and...beer? Brew City MKE is pairing the classic holiday cookies with four MKE beers at Milwaukee Craft: Holiday Cookies with Third Coast Provisions on Saturday. Third Coast Provisions Executive Pastry Chef Jonna Zaczek will be demonstrating how to decorate the cookies as well as giving tips on how to decorate your own. This event is at the Brew City Beer Museum from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m.

For more crafts, head over to the 5th Annual Cream City Creatives Craft Fair. More than 50 local crafters will be at the Turner Hall Ballroom on Sunday selling unique handmade gifts. The event runs from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. and tickets are $3 for visitors 13-and older.

Next up on The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra Film Concert Series is Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban™. The orchestra will perform the live score as the film plays. You can see this all weekend long at The Riverside Theater.
